A Radical Thought

Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Phil. ii.3. (quoted in Lincoln's Devotional, page 72).

When we think of Lincoln is not this what we most envision and appreciate about him--a man who esteemed others better than himself.  How alien to current thought and practice this is, with our emphasis on rampant self-assertiveness approaching at times self-worship. No wonder strife and vain glory abound.  Today I will consider a radical idea (written some 2,000 years ago) that I should consider others better than myself.
